“Naughty” Gingerbread Men Post

 

“Naughty” Gingerbread Men

A couple years ago my dear friend Trevor asked me to make him some “Naughty & Nice” gingerbread men cookies for his New Year’s Eve party. Apparently they were a big hit so now when the holidays come around it just seems like a natural thing to continue the fun tradition, albeit a nontraditional one.  So, do you think these little guys with the mischievous grins will be on Santa’s naughty list this year? Have a jolly “holly” day. 😉… [Read More]

Spritz Christmas Cookies – Dipped and Delish!

When I was a little girl, about eye level with the table, I remember my mom making spritz cookies for Christmas. They seemed like so much effort for such a small cookie – filling up the copper colored aluminum tube, turning the nob that screwed the plunger down to push the dough through the tube and shaped discs.  Problem was you never knew how much dough was coming out – were you turning the knob too much or too little? … [Read More]

Pink Christmas Tree Cookies with Fondant Pennants

Happy December! I can’t believe the countdown has begun!  What have you got planned this holiday season? This year we’ve been invited to a few parties where, for some reason, I’ve been asked to bring cookies.  😉  I wanted to design a cookie that said fun + party with more of a generic feeling in the holiday affiliation area but still said “happy holidays”. Did you know I’m crazy for pennants?  What says fun + party more than pennants?  I… [Read More]

Meringue Mushrooms

Meringue Mushrooms are a special treat at Christmas time. I’ve usedthem to decorate Buche du Noels but I like to make them to give as gifts because they’re different from the regular holiday cookies. They present nicely in a small decorative basket, a mushroom basket from the store or even wrapped up in a cello bag tied with a festive ribbon. Things needed~1/2 c. egg whites, room temp. (3 to 4 large eggs)1/8 tsp. table salt1/4 tsp. cream of tarter1… [Read More]
